Try uninstalling the device and re-installing it, this should clear it up. Also you might want to seek out an updated driver.

My PC is not recognizing my camera, so i cannot download my pictures. It used to work fine for 2 years. In the Device Manager it gives me the following message: Windows cannot start this hardware device...


Windows updates has changed the registry and now your camera is no longer recognized. No problem....just get a card reader and use it instead of your camera for downloads.

Microsoft WPD FileSystem Volume Driver message Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)


Hello.

It seems you have a faulty driver.

Recommended resolutions
A registry problem was detected.
This can occur when more than one service is defined for a device, if there is a failure opening the service subkey, or if the driver name cannot be obtained from the service subkey. Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.

Method 1. Uninstall and reinstall the driver
Uninstall the driver from Device Manager and scan for new hardware to install the driver again. Here is how: First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:
1. Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.
2. In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".
3. Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".
Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.

You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or may still have the driver files installed from the last time that you set up the device. However, sometimes, it will open the New Hardware Wizard which may ask for the driver. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor's Web site.
  1. On the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Uninstall . Follow the instructions.
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. Open Device Manager, click Action , and then click Scan for hardware changes . Follow the instructions.
Method 2. Revert to the most recent successful registry configuration This content is designed for an advanced computer user.

The Last Known Good Configuration feature restores all the registry information and driver settings that were in effect the last time that the computer started successfully.

Code 19 DVD DX not working


  • Open up your Device Manager where you'll see your DVD DX Hardware Device that no longer works correctly. Click it, and then click uninstall. Once uninstalled you can reboot, or click 'scan for new hardware'. Either way Windows will find your Device again and reinstall the driver and probably fix the registry entries.
  • If that does not work, reboot your computer holding down F8 and select 'Load Last Known Good Configuration' before booting into Windows again. It'll restore your settings back when it didn't detect any problems.
